My head cover is silver and another 08 I have seen recently has a black cover. I was wondering what this might indicate.

How do you know yours is an '08?

VIN and engine numbers match the title, stock shorty exhaust, and all parts that I have used on the bike have fit perfectly. I was just curious. I see a lot of images on google that show the head cover the same color as the heads for the '08.

'08 valve cover silver>>> http://www.vitalmx.c...-1,6156/GuyB,64

'09 valve cover black >>>http://www.vitalmx.c...F,12667/GuyB,64

the difference visually quick glance between the '08 and '09 is minimal other then valve cover and swingarm linkage
